OXFORD, MS - The Ole Miss offense accumulated a program-record 751 yards of total offense Saturday in a 51-21 victory over Troy.

The balanced Rebels offense was on point throughout the game as it accumulated 31 first downs via 382 yards rushing and 369 yards passing. It is the fifth-highest total in Southeastern Conference history.

The Ole Miss defense did its part as well, allowing the Trojans to convert on just 4-of-13 third-down attempts and -13 yards rushing.

"That's always good and means you're doing something right," said Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze of breaking the school total yardage record. "We broke it in the third quarter, so it was a good day. We finished today, as far as our 1's and 2's, and now it's time to move on to the next one."

Quarterback Bo Wallace finished the game with 272 yards passing and three touchdowns, and a team-high 66 yards rushing, including one rushing touchdown. Laquon Treadwell had four receptions for 53 yards and two touchdowns. Treadwell is now the Ole Miss freshman record holder for catches (53), receiving yards (477) and receiving touchdowns (5) in a season.

Linebacker Serderius Bryant and freshman defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche each recorded one sack and two tackles for loss. In addition, Bryant had a forced fumble Saturday while Nkemdiche's sack was the first of his collegiate career, and his four solo tackles tied his season high. Defensive back Carlos Davis led the Rebels with a career-high six total tackles, including five solo stops.

Treadwell got the scoring started for Ole Miss (7-3, 3-3 SEC) when he caught a short pass by Wallace, shed five tackles and beat a sixth defender by diving to the left pylon for a 25-yard touchdown.

"I think he broke four or five tackles," Wallace said. "He is just a physical kid and if you get him the ball he can do a lot with it."

Brandon Burks tied the game at 7 with a 5-yard run on the next possession. It was the last time Troy would score until the fourth quarter. The Trojans (5-6) got short-yardage runs for touchdowns from Jordan Chunn and Daron White.

Following a 4-yard touchdown run by sophomore Jaylen Walton, Treadwell scored his second touchdown of the first quarter, a 23-yard reception, with 39 seconds remaining.

Wallace closed out the scoring in the first half with his legs as opposed to his arm. The junior signal caller kept it on a read option and scampered untouched to the right for a season-long 29 yards to give Ole Miss a 27-7 lead at the break.

Taking over on its own 5-yard line to begin its second drive of the third quarter, the Ole Miss offense drove 95 yards on just six plays, capped off by a beautiful 43-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Barry Brunetti to Walton.

Ole Miss made history with 4:39 to go in the third quarter on Wallace's 24-yard touchdown pass to freshman wide receiver Quincy Adeboyejo. Wallace's touchdown pass, his third of the game, gave the Rebels 644 yards of total offense, which broke the Rebels' 62-year-old program record for total yardage in a game set in 1951.
